  1. Nancy Chalker-Tennant says:

    I am especially enjoying the series Portraits in Black, Brown and Beige

  2. I happened to be traveling in Wisconsin and picked up Wednesday’s program, never having heard the show before. It was really delightful, a treat. Jubilant Sykes’ rendition of “A City Called Heaven” was particularly moving. And overall the commentary was interesting. Thanks!
